I was just curious what happens if I order a non-WL book (there are several copies in the system) and then browse the shelf of the person from whom I've ordered and I pick a second book from their shelf, if my original request times out?  I assume the first book I ordered will roll over to the book posted by the next person in the FIFO line - will that happen with the "extra" book as well?

All of the books will be rerequested through the FIFO system.

Yes, it willl just roll over to the next person in FIFO.

But the books separate.  So you end up with two different FIFO orders.

Hmm, that seems strange but I guess it shouldn't matter to me - since the feature is to help the sender save on postage, right?  I'll just keep waiting and see what happens....
